PRESIDENT Pauline Lancaster of the Inner Wheel Club of Ely was delighted with the fellowship and information the 40 members and guests received at the 64th Charter Dinner, held at Ely Golf Club.
Secretary Constance Heald opened the proceedings by singing Grace and treasurer Jenny Axford, acting as the toastmaster, ensured everything went according to plan.
Gillian Brady, Pauline Lancaster and Rachel Butler lit candles for the past, present and future of Ely Inner Wheel and Chris Goodge lit a candle for all the overseas clubs.
After a superb meal, Rotarian Jacqueline Whipp, president of the Ely Rotary Club, gave the toast to the Ely club and Gary Gardner, president of Ely Hereward Rotary Club, brought greetings.
The speaker for the evening was Aly Anderson, the business development officer from Mind in Cambridgeshire, which is president Pauline’s chosen charity for this year.
